Making aviation more accessible
Travelling by air opens-up a world of possibilities and a range of practical challenges for many disabled travellers. At QEF Accessible Aviation we directly support people considering flight who need practical help and advice, together with advising the aviation and healthcare sectors to improve their understanding of disabled passenger’s requirements.
Flight Video Guides and Tryb4ufly cabin assessments
Unless you fly frequently it can be hard to know exactly what the aircraft cabin is like and what support is available. Our unique Tryb4uFly assessment guides you through the journey in a realistic cabin environment where you can try equipment and investigate options for you to remain comfortable throughout your flight.
Our comprehensive Flight Video Guides show you the complete journey from arrival at the airport through to boarding, seating and disembarking the aircraft so you can prepare and feel confident about the flight. We exhibit at disability lifestyle exhibitions and events across the UK for you to discuss your flight and learn practical ways to make your journey more comfortable. See our Facebook page to keep up to date on product features, news and local events.
Professional Advice and Training
We know how difficult it can be to find pertinent flight related information, and the right teams to speak to when supporting a client with specific requirements, We have teamed up with Airlines and UK Airports to provide training for healthcare professionals and travel specialists to give experience and knowledge of airport and aircraft environments and increase your confidence when advising clients.
We also offer expert consultancy to airports and airlines who have ambitions to develop their passenger experience, or to support choice of specialist cabin seating options, We are supported by our Aviation Access Network consisting of disabled people and aviation industry champions and work with Government, UK and International Airlines and regulators to support initiatives that improve accessibility. Please speak to us if you have an enquiry.
Through our partner charity VASD we offer several options for accessible breaks for families including two self-catering holiday homes, one at Elmer Sands near Bognor Regis and a newly refurbished chalet at the Beach Holiday Village in Bracklesham Bay, Wittering. Accommodation is wheelchair friendly and adapted for the needs of people with disabilities.
